Young people deserve tools and information that help them connect in safe, enjoyable, and empowering ways.

Digitally Informed Youth (DIY): Digital Safety is a team of scholars, researchers, and students that aims to empower young people and provide them with tailored resources so they can have safe and enjoyable interactions online and offline.

Our team prioritizes the voices of diverse youth, including those across the spectrums of gender and sexuality and Black, Indigenous and people of colour, and we partner with young people and youth-focused organizations from across Canada to ensure the resources we develop are equitable, evidence-informed, and youth centred. We also work with critical stakeholders, including educators, policymakers, and lawmakers, to promote digital safety among youth and mitigate technology-facilitated sexual violence (TFSV) in Canada.

The DIY: Digital Safety website is an open-access knowledge hub that provides educational resources and recommendations for best practices to keep young people safe online and in person. Our goal is to provide relevant, timely educational resources to foster digital literacy, address TFSV, and facilitate safer and more meaningful connections among young people.

DIY: Digital Safety is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
